Taking it to the Next Level 2009 Preview

Nine returning letterwinners set for toughest schedule in years

One of the top-30 winningest programs in NCAA volleyball history, the University of Memphis has put together a stretch of eight-straight seasons with a record of .500 or better. Although the quest for a ninth-consecutive winning season is certainly an attainable goal, secondyear head coach April Jauregui makes it clear that her primary focus is to take Memphis volleyball to the next level. Combined with a core group of nine returning letterwinners, including five starters and its libero and the program’s strongest schedule in years, Jauregui has the Tigers on path to reach that plateau. “I definitely want to expose them to a higher level of volleyball,” said Jauregui. “They’ve already seen it in C-USA play, but my goal is for them to experience it outside of league play so they are prepared to compete at the level that it takes to battle for the top spot in the conference as well as a league championship. Playing higher RPI teams in the pre-conference season will give them that experience.”

With the loss of four-year starter and three-year team captain Laura Côté, Memphis will look to team captains Christine Bach and Lauren Thompson to step in and take on leadership roles. Both served as captains on last year’s club. While not a captain, junior defensive specialist Becky Shaffer has grown into a solid team leader and will provide a competitiveness that is unmatched. With her play on the court, junior Emily Underwood will also assume leadership responsibilities to help the 2009 Tigers succeed. Outside Hitter/Right Side Altrese Hawkins (R-Fr., OH, 5-10) Marija Jovanovic (Fr., OH, 6-2) Katlin Inglish (Jr., OH, 6-0) Rebekah Strickland (Sr., RS, 6-3) Lauren Thompson (Sr., OH, 5-10) Katlin Inglish, Rebekah Strickland Thompson will lead a crew of five outside/right side hitters for Memphis in 2009. The trio took over starting roles and played in every match a year ago. On the outside, both Inglish and Thompson had solid spring seasons that have them primed for breakout campaigns.

“They both have grown a lot from last year, getting experience being on the court the whole season, and that experience makes them prepared for this season,” said Jauregui. Thompson finished third on the team with a career-best 274 kills in 2008 and scored 311.5 points. “Going into her senior year, Lauren really wants to do well and finish (her career) on a high note.” Jauregui stated. One of the most consistent players on the roster, Inglish garnered a team-high 918 attacks in 2008. She was second on the club with 286 kills. Strickland, who returns for her fifth-season in the Blue and Gray, led Memphis with 295 kills and a .261 attack percentage a year ago. “Rebekah was consistently our best attacker last year, so I definitely expect her to contribute significantly for us again this year,” said Jauregui. “We are hoping that this year we can diversify our offense more because everyone knows now that

she is a threat.” Not only is Strickland an offense weapon, but at 6-3, she puts up a formidable block on the right side. The Mobile, Ala., native finished second on the team with 105 total blocks last year. Middle Blocker Carolyn Baker (So., MB, 6-1) Casey Sines (So., MB, 6-2) Emily Underwood (Jr., MB, 6-3) The trio of Emily Underwood, Carolyn Baker and Casey Sines affords Memphis with quite possibly the top middle blocking corps in Conference USA. Underwood finished in the top-10 nationally in blocks and earned second team All-C-USA honors a year ago, while Baker was named to the league’s All-Freshman Team. Sines downed 114 kills and tied with Baker with 62 total blocks as a freshman. The 2009 season will the see the Tiger middles continue to compete and push each other to excellence. “It’s nice to have a three middle blockers of this caliber,” Jauregui said.


With such talent in the middle, Jauregui and her staff focused on passing and defense in spring drills in efforts to give the Tigers middle hitters more opportunities to terminate balls.

Libero/Defensive Specialist Christine Bach (Jr., L, 5-9) Sarah Chambers (Sr., DS, 5-5) Becky Shaffer (Jr., DS, 5-4) Rachel Theard (Sr., DS, 5-10) Libero Christine Bach and defensive specialist Becky Shaffer return for their third year together as back row anchors for Memphis. A three-time C-USA Defensive Player of the Week honoree, Bach led the Tigers with 528 digs in 2008, while Shaffer was second with 238. “Both (Bach and Shaffer) can play the libero position equally well and both of them will be on the court no matter what. They bring a different level to our

Senior Rachel Theard also has had some time in the backrow, after making the move from a middle blocker and hitter last year. Theard’s versatiliy and athleticism affords her the ability to play anywhere on the court. “Rachel can play backrow, middle, outside or right side which is great because she is that versatile player that wherever we need someone, we can put her there,” Jauregui said. “I feel comfortable about our backrow talent.” Setter Christine Bach (Jr., 5-9) Stephanie Pauls (Fr., S, 5-10) For the first time in four years, Memphis will have a new face at the controls of its offense. Bach and freshman Stephanie Pauls will vie for the setting job. Bach was recruited as a setter, but with Côté at the helm took over the libero position and has yet to see any regular-season court time as a setter. Pauls, a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, comes to the program after a

solid prep career in which she hauled in Manitoba Player of the Year accolades. Newcomers Altrese Hawkins (R-Fr., OH, 5-10) Marija Jovanovic (Fr., OH, 6-2) Stephanie Pauls (Fr., S, 5-10) Jauregui is thrilled to get Altrese Hawkins on the court. A redshirt freshman, Hawkins excelled in spring competitions. “Altrese is so athletic and versatile,” said Jauregui. “She can play middle blocker. She can swing on the outside. She can play right side. I definitely see her fighting for a position immediately.” Pauls has good hands as well as the leadership qualities needed to succeed at the setter position. She will compete for that starting role and could see action immediately. “I’m excited about what she (Stephanie) can do,” Jauregui stated. “Freshman or not, she’s a great kid and has the right temperament to fit right in at the setter position and lead the team.”

Jauregui hopes for Jovanovic to contribute right away. She brings experience of playing at a high level as well as versatility. “Marija can play outside or right side,” said Jauregui. “My hope is that she can mesh right in with the team and find a spot on the court.” Schedule Fifteen home matches, 16 contests versus teams that posted winning seasons in 2008 and six matches against five teams that advanced to the 2008 NCAA Tournament highlight the University of Memphis’ 31-match volleyball schedule.

2009 Preview

“The better we can pass and play defense this year, the more we’ll be able to run our middles, which should bring us a great amount of success. They raise our level of play, and I expect good things out of all three of them,” said Jauregui.

game. To have two juniors that can run the back court is a great asset to our team,” commented Jauregui.

With 13 matches against teams that registered 20 or more wins, and contests at NCAA participants Missouri State, Tulane, UAB and Western Kentucky, this year’s schedule is one of the most competitive that the Tigers have ever played. “The schedule isn’t about how many wins we can rack up,” said Jauregui. “I want to push our players to the limit and be in a good situation come C-USA Tournament time to compete for the league championship.”

Head Coach April Jauregui

On Mar. 5, 2008, former University of Memphis assistant coach an and Academic All-American pla player April Jauregui was named the head volleyball coach at Me Memphis, replacing its longestten tenured and all-time winningest co coach Carrie Yerty. The eighth head coach in the 38-year history of Tiger volleyball, Jauregui (pronounced How-duh-gee) took the reins of the Memphis volleyball program in the spring of 2008, after a three-year stint as an assistant under Yerty. As the assistant, she served as the outside hitters coach, as well as being responsible for the pro-

gram’s recruiting efforts. Jauregui familiarity with the program made the transition from assistant coach to head coach a smooth one. She also brings a youthful energy and excitement to the program, as well as seven years of coaching experience at three Division I institutions (Ohio, Lamae and Memphis). Taking over the volleyball program at her alma mater is a dream fulfilled for Jauregui, who continues to build on the past successes of Memphis volleyball and is in the process of raising the program to an elite status.

Jauregui showed that she was up to the challenge of guiding the Memphis program, as she led an inexperienced Tiger squad to a 17-14 mark with just one senior and five newcomers on the roster. Three Tigers (Christine Bach, Carolyn Baker and Emily Underwood) earned C-USA postseason awards in Jauregui’s inaugural campaign. Upon the completion of her volleyball career and graduation from the University of Memphis in 2001, Jauregui moved on to Ohio University, where she served as the Bobcats’ volunt volunteer assisi the fall of tant in 2001, while workt ing towards her mast master’s degree. While at Ohio, Jaur Jauregui oversaw the program recruiting gram’s and travel. On the court, she was in charge of coaching the Bo Bobcat outside hit hitters. After a so first year, solid Ja Jauregui took on added resp sponsibilities a a full-time as a assistant und der former B Bobcats head c coach Mike Lessinger in 2002. In her two seasons with the OU

program, Jauregui helped the Bobcats to a 36-25 mark, including a 25-9 finish in 2002. That 2002 squad won the program’s first-ever MAC Tournament match en route to advancing to the semifinals of the league’s tournament. Prior to taking the assistant post at Memphis, the Orange County, Calif., native spent the 2003 and 2004 seasons as an assistant coach under former U of M assistant Fiona Simmons at Lamar University. Jauregui made the return to her alma mater in 2005 and quickly took charge of the Tigers outside hitters. Her impact was immediately felt as Memphis posted over 1,800 kills in three of the last four seasons. Former Memphis outside hitter Ashley Liford posted a pair of the program’s top performances from an outside en route to an All-C-USA season in 2007 under Jauregui’s instruction. The former Memphis star began her coaching career at the club level while still a studentathlete at Memphis. She led the Memphis Jr.’s and later coached Spike Volleyball Club in Nashville, Tenn. The former April Harriman was a standout outside hitter for Yerty at Memphis from 1997-2000. A highly-decorated player on the court, she still ranks 18th all-time at Memphis with 1,071 career kills. Over her four-year career,

Jauregui came to Memphis after a storied high school career at Brethren Christian in Los Angeles. A two-time all-league performer, Jauregui departed the BCHS program with the singlematch records for kills, blocks, aces and digs. Jauregui became the school’s first female athlete to go to school on an athletic scholarship when she made the decision to come to Memphis. Jauregui was the salutatorian of her class at BCHS and was named the California Intercollegiate Federation’s Scholar Athlete of the Year for the 1996-97 school year. An all-around athlete, Jauregui also lettered on the hardwood, earning honorable mention honors as a forward. Jauregui is married to Gabriel Jauregui, who is a special education teacher and a freshman/ junior varsity volleyball coach at Cordova High School.

The Jauregui File

Jauregui played in 129 matches and averaged over 250 kills per season. She led her 2000 club with 494 kills (a mark that still stands in the program’s top 10). One of five Tiger volleyball players to ever record 30 kills in a match, Jauregui became the third to do so when she slammed down 30 kills in a win over crosstown foe Christian Brothers in the 2000 season.

A true student-athlete, she also excelled in the classroom as an eight-time Dean’s List student. She was selected as the University of Memphis’ top female athlete in 2000 when she earned the Elma Roane Award. She also was tabbed the University’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year Award in 2000.

Tiger Volleyball’s 17-14 Finish Notches Program’s Eighth-Straight Season with .500 or Better Record 2008 Review

ach Christine B in A S -U led C in s e c a service 2008.

Laura Côté dished out 1, 208 assists to beco me the progra m’s career assists re cord-holder.

With a new head coach, just one senior and three returning starters from the previous year, the 2008 edition of Memphis volleyball took on the season with an excitement of limitless possibilities for a young squad. The young club got the season off to a strong start with a 3-0 rout of Alabama A&M in the Memphis Invitational. A straight-set sweep of McNeese State set up a championship battle versus UALR. Memphis got a match-high 19 kills from Casey Sines and 10 more from Emily Underwood, but that was all negated by 14 service errors and 10 Trojan blocks en route to a 3-1 loss to UALR. The loss was the first of the year for the Tigers and earned them a runner-up finish in the opening weekend of play. Sines and Underwood both were selected to the All-tournament team. The Tigers’ youth showed the following weekend in the Tiger Invitational. Memphis split the weekend to finish third in its second home tournament of the year. The U of M claimed four-game victories over Iona and Indiana State, but could not pull out a pair of five-game losses to IUPUI and Troy. The loss to IUPUI saw a Tiger volleyball record as libero Christine Bach picked up a single-match record 37 digs. Memphis then ran off four-consecutive wins, including going 3-0 to win the 2008 Bulldog Club Invitational at Mississippi State. Libero Bach, setter Laura Côté and right side hitter Rebekah Strickland were named to the all-tournament team. Côté was tabbed the Invitational's Most Outstanding Player.

Emily Under wood led C-U SA and ranked in th e nation’s to p-10 in blocking.

Riding the momentum of the Bulldog Club title, Memphis opened Conference USA play at reigning league champ UAB. Sophomore middle blocker Underwood hammered 12 kills and made a match-high eight blocks to lead Memphis to a 3-1 road win over the Blazers. The victory notched the Tigers’ first at UAB since the 2004 season. The four-match streak quickly came to an end the next afternoon in the Tigers' opening contest of the UAB/Samford Invitational. Despite a first-set victory over Samford, the Memphis offense sputtered the rest of the match, hitting just .066 in a 3-1 loss to the Bulldogs. Jauregui's young bunch quickly put that loss behind them and got back to their winning ways. Staring one of the toughest opponents on the schedule, in nationally-ranked Florida International, Memphis was up to the task. In a battle that showcased the country's leader in kills — FIU's Yarimar Rosa — and the nation's top blocker — Memphis' Underwood. Neither player disappointed as Rosa struck for a match-high 24 kills and Underwood led all players with 10 total blocks. However, it was 15 kills from Strickland and Lauren Thompson, combined with 25 digs by Bach, that fueled a 3-2 comeback win over the Panthers. Behind a match-best 16 kills from Katlin Inglish and 14 terminations from Strickland, the Tigers raced to a 3-0 sweep of Chattanooga to round out the non-conference slate at 10-4. With wins in six of its last seven outings, Memphis took its act on the road for a pair of tough C-USA matches at Marshall and East Carolina. The Ti-

gers split the weekend, dropping a four-gamer at Marshall before using 14 total blocks, including 22 block assists to hold East Carolina to just .087 hitting in a dominating 3-1 victory. At 11-5, Memphis then returned to face leaguefavorite Tulane and UTEP. Inglish's 15 kills and Côté 30 assists, combined with a strong defensive effort that showcased 15 blocks, the Tigers put themselves in position to pull off the upset. But, in a contest dictated by momentum swings, it was Tulane who managed to score when it counted the most, as the Green Wave handed Memphis club a four-set defeat. A resilient Memphis club bounced back in the following contest and rode Strickland's matchhigh 14 kills, .462 attack percentage and six total blocks to its 12th win of the year in a 3-1 win against UTEP. The Tigers then hit a rough skid, losing threestraight road matches at Arkansas State, UCF and Southern Miss. Having dipped under .500 in league play for the first time and a six-match homestand on the horizon, Memphis was poised to get back to its winning ways. A win over SMU got the home stretch off to a positive start and kicked off a series of five wins in six matches. The lone loss came to Tulsa, but was not without a program milestone. With her 19th assist versus Tulsa, Côté became Tiger vol-


leyball’s all-time assists leader, surpassed Clare Dirksen’s former mark of 5,653 assists—a record that stood for 19 years.

2008 Review

Underwood put down a career-high 21 kills and made eight block assists, while Côté posted her first double-double of the year with 52 assists and 15 digs, as Memphis held off a late rally by UCF to clinch a 3-2 win.

A second-consecutive double-double performance from Côté joined by solid play on both sides of the net helped Memphis gain a season series split with Southern Miss via a four-game triumph. The Tiger offense ensured the program’s eightstraight .500 or better finish in a sweep of Marshall. Underwood downed a match-high 14 kills and hit .476 to lead the Memphis’ offense that hit .341 in the contest. The Tiger defense held Marshall to .a 106 hitting percentage en route to its third-straight win. Memphis used a strong defensive effort to stretch its streak to four games with a sweep of ECU. Bach picked up a match-high 18 digs and the Tiger frontline recorded 17 block assists to hold ch. ECU to a .028 attack percentage for the match.

A fatigued young squad was unable to take control of the momentum of its four-match streak and stumbled to three-straight losses at Houston and Rice and at home versus UAB to round out regular season action with a 17-13 overall record and an 8-8 mark in C-USA play. The .500 finish in league play gave Memphis the No. 6 seed in the C-USA Championships. The Tigers were paired with UTEP, who they handed a 3-1 loss earlier in the year. However, even with a C-USA Championship record and season-best 18 aces, the Tigers were unable to hold off the upsetminded Miners and were outlasted in a five-set marathon, ending the season at 17-14.

With construction on the newly transformed Tudor Fieldhouse complete, Rice University will host the 2009 C-USA Volleyball Championships, Nov. 20-22. Thanks to a $7 million gift from Rice University trustee and alumnus Bobby Tudor and his wife, Phoebe, allowed Rice to move forward on the $30 million project. A year-and-a-half project that began in the spring of 2007 and ended in the fall of 2008, the new Tudor Fieldhouse complex underwent a foundation-to-roof renovation that has made it a stateof-the-art facility with the amenities fans have come to expect from new stadiums. During that time the Rice volleyball team played the 2007 and 2008 home schedules in Fox Gymnasium. Among the new features of Tudor Fieldhouse are a club area located behind the upper north end zone seating. The club will also offer a panoramic view of the Rice University campus. A reconfigured

seating arrangement includes new mechanized seating along the sidelines which can be retracted for more court space as well as new east end zone seating for Rice students. Amenities also include a new sound system and game information scoreboard, new concession areas and rest rooms. The cozy dimensions and great sightlines that made Autry a feared game site in the past have been maximized in Tudor Fieldhouse. The arena was originally designated “Autry Court” in memory of Mrs. James L. Autry. Her daughter, Mrs. Edward W. Kelley, made a generous donation to the gymnasium building fund in honor of her late mother, an ardent supporter of Rice.

In 14 years, 130 studentathletes earned national ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America honors, while 461 were named All-District. In addition, more than 17,000 student-athletes have been named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll or received the Commissioner’s Academic Medal, indicative of outstanding achievement in the classroom. C-USA ON TV C-USA enjoys significant television exposure through its partnerships with ESPN Inc. and CBS College Sports Television Networks. The league entered into long-term agreements with both ESPN and CBS College Sports, which, combined, provides C-USA with significant national and regional exposure for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and all other conference sports. Additionally, the CBS College Sports agreement includes video-on-demand, Internet, broadband, national over-the-air and satellite radio, and wireless distribution as well as corporate marketing rights, and website production through CBS Interactive. The agreement with ESPN extends the conference’s current regular season football package to include the broadcast of the conference’s Football Championship Game. It also encompasses distribution of men’s basketball and women’s basketball on ESPN/ESPN2 and both tournament championship games.

C-USA IN THE COMMUNITY The conference’s footprint is concentrated with 12 members in nine states and a combined area population of nearly 17 million. More than 1.1 million living alumni represent C-USA schools across the nation. With a renewed commitment to community involvement, the conference has begun development of several initiatives to maintain strong ties in C-USA cities, as well as with fans and alumni across the country. C-USA schools also place a priority on giving back to their communities through volunteer service with local and national organizations. GOVERNANCE Along with the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and SEC, Conference USA is one of the seven conferences having significant representation in the NCAA governance structure. The Presidents of the member institutions serve as the league’s Board of Directors. R. Gerald Turner of SMU currently serves as chair of the Board. A PROUD HISTORY; A PROMISING FUTURE Conference USA was formed in 1995 and quickly emerged as one of the nation’s top conferences. The conference unveiled its name, logo and commissioner on April 24, 1995 in Chicago. The league’s charter members included Charlotte, Cincinnati, DePaul, Houston, Louisville, Marquette, Memphis, Saint Louis, Southern Miss, Tulane, UAB and USF. Eleven of the institutions began athletic participation in 1995, while Houston joined competition in the fall of 1996. The league’s headquarters were established in Chicago and after nine years, relocated to the current office in Irving, Texas. Britton Banowsky was named Commissioner in October 2002, succeeding Mike Slive, the league’s first commissioner. C-USA added East Carolina (September, 1996) and the United States Military Academy (March, 1997) as football members. ECU began league competition in 1997; Army in 1998 and UAB began football play in 1999. The league added TCU and ECU (1999) for all sports and they began competition in 2001. USF started C-USA football in 2003. After celebrating its 10th Anniversary during the 2004-05 season, C-USA began a new chapter in 2005-06 when its current membership came together to form the new look of the league. Since its formation, C-USA has established a strong foundation, an identity and a history that reflects the league’s national presence. Fourteen years of remarkable history has reinforced the league’s position in collegiate athletics, setting the course for the next decade and beyond.

or almost a century the University of Memphis has been a catalyst for progress in the city of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the surrounding Mid-South region. From its inception as a normal school dedicated to the education of public school teachers, to its role today as an educator of technologically-savvy graduates who face a complex world, the University of Memphis has always fulfilled its current mission while looking forward to and planning for its future. Exceptional students from Tennessee, from every other state in the nation and from almost 100 countries around the world choose to attend the University of Memphis. They come here on the recommendation of their major professors at European universities; they come here to study subjects that are offered nowhere else; they come to study alongside men and women who are recognized and respected throughout the academic and scientific communities as foremost in their fields. Ever forward-looking, the University of Memphis is poised to enter one of its most historic and productive periods. From the faculty and staff we have in place to our alumni and benefactors, our “people assets” have never been more willing, able and generous in their efforts to build an academic environment that makes a life-long impact on the young minds at the U of M.

C. Johnson came aboard in February of 1996 and immediately set forth in bringing U of M Tiger athletics into national prominence. Over the last 13 years, the dynamic administrator has built Tiger Athletics into a nationally-recognized program that has been to five bowl games in the last six years and played for the Men’s Basketball National Championship title in 2007-08. In addition, for the last 11 straight years, donations to the department have continued to rise, and on June 30, 2009, a record-setting $7 million was announced by the Tiger Scholarship Fund. Also in the last six years under Johnson, the Tigers have captured 13 total C-USA championships in men’s basketball, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s golf and men’s track. The men’s basketball program has garnered five regular-season titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) and four C-USA Tournament championships (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009), while the women’s soccer program claimed back-to-back league championships in 2007 and 2008. Johnson is currently spearheading his second major capital campaign which benefits nearly every area of the Tiger Athletic Department. Included in the $12.9 million project is a new addition to the Athletic Office Building, a weight room and turf practice field for Tiger Football, a redesign of the Tiger baseball stadium that is currently underway, the completed golf practice facility, a renovation of the Finch Center men’s basketball practice facility and the Anfernee Hardaway Hall of Fame to honor Tiger athletes. Johnson’s first capital campaign was previously the largest fund-raising effort in the history of Memphis athletics. The $8 million campaign included a new 8,000-square-foot football and basketball office complex addition, a new basketball practice facility, which is still considered one of the best in the country, and a complete renovation of the Murphy Athletic Complex. During his tenure, Johnson has created the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, the Tiger Scholarship Fund Board of Directors and the Athletic Director’s Ambassador’s Club. The Ambassador’s Club, which started with two members in 1997, has reached an all-time high of 37 members under Johnson. A significant revenue source for Tiger Athletics, members of the Ambassador’s Club pledge to commit $500,000. In June 2007, Johnson inked a lucrative longterm contract extension with Learfield Sports, which enabled Tiger Sports Properties to retain the multimedia rights for Memphis Athletics through 2017. The Tigers signed on with Learfield Sports in 2001, granting the partner radio and television rights, athletic venue signage, game day promotions and sponsorships, as well as the official athletic department website. Terms for the contract call for the Tigers to receive a financial guarantee each year of the agreement and to participate in annual revenue sharing. Last fall, the U of M entered into a five-year, $11.3 million partnership with Nike to provide shoes, apparel and equipment for all Tiger athletic teams. A believer in academic excellence as well as athletic success and national prominence, Johnson leads a department that set a school record with 50 percent of its student-athletes achieving a 3.0 or higher during the fall 2007 semester. For the most recent academic year, which includes fall 2008 and spring 2009, 335 student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA and 12 had a 4.0 for the year and 20 others had a 4.0 either in the fall or spring. Nine teams logged a semester average of 3.0 or higher for the 2007 fall semester, and for the last four straight semesters, the athletic department as a whole has maintained a 2.8 GPA . In May 2008, 44 athletes earned their degrees, marking the largest group for one ceremony since 2002 when the athletic academic services department began keeping record. Johnson came to Memphis after serving as athletic director at Temple from 1994-1995. A long-time administrator, Johnson also served as an athletic director at Miami University (19881994) and Eastern Illinois (1980-88), and was the associate athletic director at Northern Iowa from 1974-80. An native of Ottawa, Ill., Johnson holds his bachelor’s degree in sociology from the University of Iowa in 1965 and earned his master’s degree in physical education from the University of Northern Iowa in 1967. Johnson and his wife, Melba, have three children: Jeff, P.A. and Michelle; five grandchildren and one great grandson.

n March 2002, vast improvements were beginning to take place in the CAAS. At that time, Dr. Joe Luckey took over the staff after spending the previous 10 years at Austin Peay State University. Dr. Luckey, who was nationally recognized for his outstanding leadership in 1999, came to Memphis with a vision. In just one short year, Dr. Luckey recruited six new staff members, instituted new academic programs, designed and inspired two (which is now four) special sections of ACAD 1100 for student-athletes and transitioned the office from the basement of the Elma Roane Fieldhouse to the newlyrenovated Wilder Tower. Dr. Luckey heads a full-time staff of eight, while also utilizing 20 tutors, two academic interns, graduate assistants and student workers. CAAS has a unique responsibility as an office as it provides academic services to all student-athletes and conducts all necessary paperwork for NCAA academic compliance/ certification. The academic services include orientation programs, tutoring, mentoring, academic counseling, study hall and academic advising. Further detail about the services and programs offered by CAAS are found on the website, http://www.memphis.edu/caas/index. php. Dr. Luckey has continued to challenge the Center’s staff, the coaching staffs and the student-athletes to collaboratively enhance the academic performance of U of M student-athletes. As the following highlights indicate, the group effort has resulted in positive results for the university. During the last seven academic years, 14 teams have posted their highest-ever semester GPAs, a record number of student-athletes made the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll and the Tiger 3.0 Club, the department semester GPA record has been set, and several individual student-athletes have been recognized for prestigious national academic awards, such as the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and Academic All-America. Ultimately, the goal of every student-athlete is to graduate. CAAS has continued to set records here as well as 44 student-athletes graduated in May, 2009, encompassing the largest-ever graduation group for the athletics department. The CAAS received a new home during the summer of 2003 with the completion of the Wilder Tower. The Wilder Tower also houses admissions, the bursar, financial aid, the registrar, student development and academic advising. A total of 8,000 square feet, encompassing the entire sixth and seventh floors of the tower, have been designated for the CAAS. The area supports 23 student computer stations, 17 offices and numerous study tables. Four academic awards are sponsored by the CAAS as a means of honoring the top student-athletes. The Tiger 3.0 Club recognizes student-athletes who earned gradepoint averages of 3.0 during the fall/spring semesters, while the Tiger Academic Thirty is dedicated to the 30 student-athletes with the best grade-point average on each team and then the next best group of student-athletes, totaling 30. The final honor, the TEAM GPA Award, is presented to the male and female team with the best grade point average for the semester. The fourth and newest award, CAAS Academic Achievement Award, is presented to the student-athlete(s) who has overcome personal hardship but has still worked hard in the classroom.

hen the University of Memphis first fielded a football team in the fall of 1912, no one had selected a nickname for the squad. Early references to the football team tabbed them only as the Blue and Gray Warriors of West Tennessee Normal School. After the final game of the 1914 season, there was a student parade. During this event, several Normal students shouted, “We fight like Tigers.” The nickname was born. More and more the nickname “Tigers” was used, particularly in campus publications. But it did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use “Normals” or the “Blue and Gray” when referring to the University. In the late 1920s, student publications and downtown newspapers began referring to the football team as the “Teachers” or “Tutors.” The Tiger nickname would return, but not until 1939 was it finally adopted as the official nickname for the University of Memphis. The first Tiger, TOM, was procured by the Highland Hundred Football Boosters in 1972 and served the U of M faithfully for nearly 20 years until passing away in February of 1992. The Highland Hundred officially presented TOM to the University in a ceremony at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on November 11, 1972, during a football game against the University of Cincinnati. TOM had initially been named ‘Shane’ at the suggestion of the breeder’s daughter. Once in Memphis, though, a contest was held to name the mascot. More than 2,500 entries were submitted. The list was ultimately reduced to two choices, Shane, and TOM, which stands for Tigers Of Memphis. TOM won. In the fall of 1991, the Highland Hundred Tiger Guard received TOM II as a gift from Tom and Carolyn Atchison of Florence, Alabama. TOM II would serve with pride for 17 years through 2008, passing away on October 15th of that year. Shortly after TOM II’s death, the Tiger Guard began the search for a new tiger to serve as TOM III, and a stroke of good luck was realized in a discussion with the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue & Educational Center in Rock Springs, Wis. Faced with three new cubs born August 31, 2008, after an unexpected pregnancy at their facility, founders Jeff Kozlowski and Jenny Meyer offered to donate one of their young tigers to serve as TOM III. TOM III was introduced at a press conference on November 17, 2008, and the Tiger Guard officially presented him to the University on November 22 during a football game against the UCF.

onsidered the “Home of the Blues” and the “Birthplace of Rock ‘n Roll,” the city of Memphis’ musical roots run deep. However, music is just a chapter in the history as well as the future of the city located in the heart of MidAmerica. Memphis, named after the capital of ancient Egypt, boasts all the amenities you would expect in a city with over 1 million residents, while retaining the charm and down-to-earth feel of a small town. Downtown Memphis recently realized a building boom valued at $2.3 billion which transformed the heart of the city. One of the most visible projects was the construction of AutoZone Park, the downtown ballpark which is the home of the Memphis Redbirds, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Triple-A club. The 14,320seat stadium includes 1,500 club seats, 48 luxury suites and is located at the corner of Third Street and Union Avenue across from the world-famous Peabody Hotel. The city’s newest downtown project is FedExForum, an entertainment arena that houses both the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association and the University of Memphis men’s basketball team. The $250 million state-of-the-art arena features a 35,000-square-foot outdoor plaza where fans of all ages can gather before an event. The arena has over 100 points of sale for concession stands and four full-service restaurants. FedExForum is located one block south of Beale Street. Beale Street has rapidly become the entertainment center of Memphis and visitors and locals alike enjoy the food and music offered in the various nightclubs. Where Beale Street meets the Mississippi River is Tom Lee Park, site of the annual Beale Street Music Festival. The weekend-long event is just a part of the month-long Memphis in May International Festival which also includes the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Sunset Symphony. Also located within a block of Beale is Gibson Guitar Memphis, which includes factory tours and cultural exhibits. Across the street is the Smithsonian’s Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum located at the FedExForum, which includes artifacts documenting music’s past. Memphis’ musical roots also include Stax and Hi-Records as well as Sun Records recording studio. Stax became known for “sweet soul music” through such artists as the MarKeys, Booker T. and the MGs, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam and Dave and Isaac Hayes. One of Hi-Records’ premier artists was Al Green. Sun Records’ most famous recording artist was Elvis Presley and also boasted Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash among its recording artists. Elvis Presley’s Graceland is one of the five most visited home tours in America and is the most famous home in the United States after the White House. In 1991, Graceland was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. Over 600,000 visitors tour Graceland each year. The city’s location makes Memphis a major distribution hub with two interstate highways intersecting the city. Memphis is also home of FedEx, the nation’s largest package carrier which makes Memphis International Airport the world’s busiest cargo airport. Over 500 commercial passenger flights originate from Memphis International each day.
